    1 lb ground beef
    1 T diced garlic
    1 sm can mild green chiles (diced)
    1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
    1 (15 oz) can corn (drained)
    1 (15 oz) can green beans
    1 cup merlot or red wine
    1 T chili powder

    1 box Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
    1/3 cup milk
    1 small can cream corn
    1 egg

    3/4 c cheddar cheese
    2 cans black olives


Preheat oven to 350.

Brown ground beef, drain.

Return beef to pan, add garlic, green chile, tomato sauce, wine, corn, green beans, chili powder. Let Simmer. (if too soupy add a small amount of flour to thicken).

In seperate bowl mix together, corn bread mix, cream corn, egg, milk and 1/2 of cheese. (I then used 1/2 to make biscuits and saved the other 1/2 for the topping.

Pour beef mixture into a 9x13 baking pan.

Pour topping over mixture, don't mix in.

Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until cornbread topping is golden brown.

Remove from oven and cover with remaining cheese and olives.

Note: I mixed olives in with beef/veggie mixture and cooked together.

The recipe I modified this from said it makes 12 servings, just making it tonight so I'm not sure what size a serving is.
